Except for the heat and the tiredness of or feet everything has been just top.
We do not get tired of walking (even though our feet complain) and we’ve been trying to go to every place our friends have recommended us or those that Bourdain did.
So!… we tried the frullati which is basically a fruit smoothie that leaves you wanting for more and we had a hard time finding a place that served cacio e pepe. Cacio e pepe is basically pasta with cheese and pepper, and according to Bourdain the best pasta he had in his trip to Rome…we found it though! After we had the best pizza ever at Baffetto. That pizza was the best I ever had. Thin crust, just the right amount of sauce and the best fresh ingredients. To accompany the pizza we had a bottle of white wine that was also terribly good. We got out of Baffetto we walked around for just a bit and found a place that serve cacio e pepe… Imagine that! So we sat down and had dinner. Again. Literally half hour after we had an entire bottle of wine and a huge delicious pizza. And it was well worth it.
Cacio e pepe is the simplest pasta dish one can have. It’s so simple one doesn’t get why aren’t there more places that serve it. It’s a classic dish. And probably the best pasta dish I ever had.
So in Rome it’s okay to have two dinners. If its the right meal.
Have a wonderful Monday! Geez I can’t believe it’s already Monday!
